All issues of the annual bibliographies for the Libraries’ Contemporary German Literature Collection are now available as PDF downloads in Open Scholarship, the University’s institutional repository. Beginning in 1985, the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures, in cooperation with the University Libraries, began publishing an annual bibliography of items added the previous year to the Contemporary German Literature Collection. In addition to basic bibliographical information, subject and genre descriptors are included for each volume. Some issues also provide annotations. These bibliographies provide a comprehensive snapshot of what has been published in German-speaking Europe since the 1980s.
For more information, see the websites Contemporary German Literature Collection and Max Kade Center for Contemporary German Literature.
